I know how tough it was for Steven Universe fans when the series ended. The Cartoon Network modern classic delighted fans, made them sing along and just feel good about what they were watching. Thankfully, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has decided to put it all together in one huge collection.
Steven Universe: The Complete Collection spans 15 discs, full of episodes and bonus content. That means Steven Universe, Steven Universe Future and Steven Universe: The Movie. So, let's take a look inside:
As you can see, this is a very vibrant and well put together set. The box art in the interior alone would make any true fan smile. Then you take a look at the special features, and realize that you will be singing along again in no time.
- Steven Universe: The Movie Sing-a-Long
- Music Videos
- Commentary for select episodes
Sure, it might not save the world, but it might just save yours. The show is fun, it can be enjoyed by all ages and there's just something about these characters that make you want to watch them again and again. So, not only is this a great way to introduce someone you know to the show for the first time, but that box will shine like a beacon on your shelf.
In case you're not familiar with the show, here is the synopsis provided by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment: "Cartoon Network’s six-time Emmy-nominated Steven Universe revolves around Steven, the “little brother” to a team of magical aliens — the Crystal Gems — who defend the planet Earth. Steven is the son of the Crystal Gems’ late leader Rose Quartz and aging aspiring rockstar Mr. Universe. Steven belongs everywhere and nowhere: he has inherited his mother’s Gem and her magical powers, but also his father’s humanity and charm. The show is a slice-of-life action comedy that follows Steven as he attempts to bridge the gap between the sci-fi fantasy world of Gems and the cozy, funny, simple-yet-extraordinarily-complicated world of human beings."
Steven Universe: The Complete Collection arrives on DVD, December 8, 2020.
